This past weekend kicked off the unofficial start of Summer with Memorial Day Weekend, which also means the start of grilling season… and swimsuit season!

While I’m not willing to give up a juicy delicious cheeseburger over the summer, I am totally up for slimming it down with turkey instead of beef!

I love fresh tomato bruschetta, especially in the summer because it’s so light and refreshing.

I decided to add some of my favorite bruschetta ingredients into the turkey burger patties, then top the burgers with mozzarella cheese and a heaping of fresh bruschetta!
